Director of Communications
While working for two of the largest healthcare providers in the nation, Grace saw many patients suffering from diseases that could have been prevented with lifestyle and wellness interventions. Her personal passion for preventative medicine aligns with Radicle Science’s mission and her desire to improve people’s health outcomes. Grace has been professionally supporting Dr. Jeff since his days running one of UCLA’s first natural medicine research programs, and she was recruited by Radicle to guide its PR and communication efforts.
After graduating from UC Berkeley and the Haas School of Business, Grace served in Americorps and then worked as an academic journal reviewer for Cambridge Scientific Abstracts. She then founded and ran a content firm, publishing ~10 million words annually for online and traditional brands, such as Gillette, Bacardi, and eHealthinsurance, as well as the world’s largest ad agency. She spearheaded content development for several Silicon Valley success stories from beta stage through acquisition, notably Archives.com (acquired by Ancestry.com) and Uptake (acquired by Groupon).
After witnessing her grandmother’s heartbreaking, late-stage Alzheimer’s, Grace began transitioning into healthcare and research, working for Mt. Sinai Health Systems and BJC Healthcare. She is currently in grad school at Harvard, where her research focuses on Alzheimer’s prevention and etiology.
Grace has a wonderful son from whom she learns constantly. Her favorite way to travel is with a backpack, a one-way ticket, and the Spirit wind.
